Ok, I've always wondered why people sell or trade one Spyder for another (besides for looks.) Basically, they're the same gun (at least in the past couple of years.) Only difference is cocking and body styles, and not that much difference.

Now, my thoughts are, if you are selling/trading your Spyder, may as well move up. Ion, Promaster, Wrath, used T1 - those are good mid level guns. OR, depending one which direction you're heading, go for a high end gun like a PM, DM, Timmy, Shocker, etc. if you're the next tournament superstar.

I say, with your budget and the idea that you're selling your Electra - go for the Ion, the T1 or the Wrath - the Promaster is going to be a bit more expensive if I remember right. But if you're looking at buying another Spyder, I'd say keep the one you have and upgrade the crap out of it.

Just my .02....

well my electra chops balls like a butcher chops cows
one after the other
so i figured why the hell not and sell it

i like the ion cause its so customizable
but i like high-end markers cause theyre so dependable
and i never really like spyders
but it was something i could afford and i didnt want a stryker

Well, in that case, go to the mid level guns I mentioned.

I agree especially on the Ion. It works well, so long as you take the time to properly tune it. With a few upgrades (feedneck, QEV, grips, regulator, ASA, and barrel), it will perform better than a lot of markers.

promaster is only like 60 more, i wouldnt let that stop you from buying it if its what you want because id spend alot more than 60 on an ion. 30 new feed. 15 qev,35 new trigger. etc. i didnt even mention the board.
